Auckland's Level Four lockdown could be making the grass even greener on the other side.
Real estate agents in regions such as Tauranga are reporting record levels of interest from Auckland home buyers.
Some are even making lockdown sales where the buyers haven't been able to see the property.
Valocity valuation director James Wilson told Kate Hawkesby it was already happening pre-lockdown, but now it's coming to a head.
"We've now seeing and hearing those stories around interest levels spiking, you look at agencies reporting massive interest for listings that do come up."
